Critical Habitat Orders

Critical Habitat of the Pugnose Minnow (Opsopoeodus emiliae) Order: SOR/2022-236

The Pugnose Minnow (Opsopoeodus emiliae) is a small freshwater fish species whose Canadian distribution is limited to a small area of southwestern Ontario. A contraction of the species’ distribution is thought to have occurred as more recent surveys have failed to detect Pugnose Minnow in two locations: the Thames River (presumed extirpated) and McDougall Drain (possibly extirpated).
